Subject: Sheaffer was in a mellow mood...
and the crowd loved him! For those of you that weren't there (which would be most all of you):

This show was held in the basement of Josh Lewis's house, though the word "basement" is misleading--he's turned a 2000 square foot space into a mini-club, complete with stage, speakers, lights, mixing-board, etc. Maximum capacity inside is about 75 people, but there were probably only 50 people there, so needless to say it was a very intimate setting.

Directly outside Josh set up several big speakers and chairs around a big campfire. The sound outside was surprisingly very good, so much so that I was tempted to spend the entire show outside, staring into the fire & chilling to the music. But I couldn't resist the intimate scene inside.

Unlike some Sheaffer solo shows I've listened to here on archive, you'll hear very little chatter going on while Todd's playing. It might sound as if the crowd wasn't into the music, but in reality it was exactly the opposite--they were totally into the music & as such were paying attention & intentionally LISTENING. Personally I took the crowd's silence to be a sign of respect for both the music & the musician.

That said, it would have been nice to have a little more energy in the room, but IMO that's mostly a result of the songs Todd chose to play. He played mostly ballads & love songs which of course don't build up much energy and don't create an atmosphere conducive to a bunch of hooping & hollering. And that's perfectly OK. It was a sit-down & listen kind of show, and that's exactly what this room full of people did--they paid attention, clapped enthusiastically in-between songs, & as far as I could tell, thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Highlights of the show (for me) were Where Songs Begin (great choice to open the show), I've Endured, Goat, Way Over Yonder, Peggy-O, & A Hard Rain's Gonna' Fall.

Bangin' Out a Melody was an apropos choice in response to a funny comment someone in the audience made, and though I've never previously been a huge fan of the song, I have new-found respect for the song Spacey Johnny. I'm sure the few of you reading this will already know this, but the Unknown Song? in the playlist is a From Good Homes tune called I only Want.

As always, God bless the Tapers!
